About this Event

Vermonts only Johnny Cash Tribute Band!

Website

George actually met Johnny and June in person several times in the late '80's, and ever since then, held the dream of one day forming his own Johnny Cash tribute band. With the help of some amazing local musicians (and some good fortune), George met the wonderful people that shared his vision. George Richard, as Johnny Cash, has a baritone voice that reminds all of the "golden-throated" Cash. Our female vocalist, Marie Ragan, as June Carter Cash, accompanies George for duets, as well as performing a powerful rendition of Patsy Cline songs.

Our marvelous musicians, Shawn Emery (as Luther Perkins), Marty Morrissey (Jack Clement), Wayne Wanser (W.S. Holland) and Chris Martin (Marshall Grant) passionately bring that familiar, authentic Cash sound. A few months ago, we were very fortunate and honored to have an incredible sound man join our show...Frank Paulik. Many thanks to Dennis Fox, who graciously lends his support when needed for stage lighting and standing-in for our guitarists.

We have performed at the Vergennes Opera House in Vergennes, VT, the Littleton Opera House in Littleton, NH, the Vermont Statehouse, the Chandler Center for the Arts in Randolph, Durty Nelly's Irish Pub in St. Albans, Apple Island RV Resort in South Hero, Enosburg Opera House in a dual-tribute performance with Mark Shelton as Elvis Presley, the Franklin County Field Days in Enosburg, the Vermont Dairy Festival in Enosburg, Shelburne Sugarworks in Shelburne, the Community Bible Church in S. Burlington, the Bayside Pavilion in St. Albans, the Wounded Warrior Project's Oktoberfest in Shelburne, the Moose Lodge in S. Burlington, Colors Helping Others in Alburgh, and CareOne in Millbury, MA. We were also featured on "The :30" and a second news segment on WCAX, as well as a great article in the Burlington Free Press! The band enjoys giving back to our communities with benefit concerts. We've teamed up with the Burlington Moose Lodge two years in a row now during 98.9 WOKO's Big Change Roundup to help raise money for the UVM Childrens Hospital. We are both honored and grateful to work with those dedicated Moose Lodge members!

To honor "The Man in Black" and the shows he performed at Folsom Prison and San Quentin State Prison, The Johnny Cash Tribute Show has performed for inmates at six Vermont correctional facilities so far: the Northeast Correctional Complex, the Northwest State Correctional Facility, the Chittenden Regional Correctional Facility, the Southern State Correctional Facility, and the Maple Valley Regional Correctional Facility and the Northern State Correctional Facility. The inmates, superintendents, staff and volunteers in attendance were very appreciative of the band's performances and enjoyed our shows!

Doors open 30/45 minutes before advertised showtime. Stop by early to grab dinner and drinks at The Mad Taco. We operate in collaboration with The Mad Taco kitchen to serve dinner through 9PM the evening of the show. The bar will remain open until the show is over for all of your whistle wetting needs!

Yes! You can bring food and drinks into the Theater during the show!
